BEIRUT: The Cabinet of Saudi Arabia Monday condemned the terrorist attacks on Lebanon and Egypt, while praising the security forces’ effort and successes.

“The Cabinet condemns the terrorist bombings in the Egyptian and Lebanese capital,” said the statement read by Culture and Information Minister Abdul-Aziz bin Mohieddin Khoja, “and praises the efforts of the two governments in pursuing the terrorist cells and the success they have achieved in this concern.”

Separately, the Cabinet condemned the recent Israeli attacks on Gaza and the occupied West Bank.

“The Cabinet condemns the brutal attacks by the Israeli occupation’s military against the Palestinian people justified by the disappearance of the three Israeli settlers.”

They called on the Security Council to take immediate action against the “arbitrary arrangements and collective punishment exerted by the Israeli authority."

The three Israeli teenagers that disappeared in the West Bank more than two weeks ago were found dead north of Hebron Monday. The Israeli army retaliated with more than 30 raids on the Gaza Strip overnight, after its troops had performed more than 1,300 raids arresting 400 and killing seven civilian Palestinians.
